Red Lane Spa Antigua
Indulge in Couples Luxury Pampering. Beauty Expert and Columnist Naomi Isted shares her thoughts on couples pampering at Sandals Resorts, Red Lane Spa – Antigua.
Voted the “World’s Most Romantic Resort”, year after year, Sandals Grande Antigua offers you the best of two worlds-the authentic Caribbean and the stylish Mediterranean-in one legendary all-inclusive vacation. Set on Antigua’s best and most famous beach, Dickenson Bay, the resort’s charming seaside garden oasis known as the Caribbean Grove is graced by meandering pathways, majestic palms and cooling Trade winds.
If you are planning a destination wedding, honeymoon or romantic couples only Caribbean getaway Sandals resorts are a must and I’m personally in love with their Antigua resort and staff. They cater for your every need and work on any budget. Service is incredible, the resorts themselves are all inclusive, the food is divine and there’s everything you need all under one resort, which makes for a calm, romantic holiday, which is all about you two. Whether its a Weddingmoon or just a much deserved rest using the award wining Red Lane Spa facilities are a must.
Discover a completely unique mind and body experience that transforms you. Inspired by the beautiful traditions and majestic natural backdrops of the Caribbean, their signature Red Lane® Spa experiences are like nothing else on Earth. Take the time to let the the fabulous team indulge you both, in natural botanicals, so your trip is not just about winding down but also renewing your energies. When you book into the spa, your journey begins with a Red Lane® Rejuvenation Specialist who is dedicated to creating an incomparable experience with a focus on CONNECTION, TIME and LOVE. Whether it’s the perfect setting for your spa experience or your favorite tropically infused aroma, they will adapt their treatments to your personal preferences.
Not only that but if you are having your wedding at Sandals, your going to want to look perfect on the day and apart from the incredible Spa experiences they offer they can also pamper you literally from head to toe. So you are glistening on your special day. Being a beauty expert and writer I have been very lucky to be invited to try and test treatments at some of the worlds leading spas. During our week in Antigua my husband and I had two incredible experiences in the spa. Firstly we opted for the ‘Scents of Love’ Couples Massage. The experience was incredibly relaxing, calming and actually very romantic. As we walked into our treatment room there were candles everywhere, rose petals and our therapists were incredibly helpful and knowledgable. We came out so incredibly relaxed with an incredibly romantic end to our treatment where the therapists had us holding hands. Amazing.
NEW! ‘Scents of Love’ Couples Massage
Rekindle the flame of love, as their therapists take you and that special someone on an aromatic journey to romance and deep connection that highlights the indigenous aromas of the Caribbean. Ranging from Fevergrass and Guava to the subtle essences of an Ocean Breeze, your therapist will guide you through a romantic candle lighting and warm massage oil ritual based upon your chosen sensory experience. 60min $265 for couples.
After our incredible Couples Massage we opted to try the couples facials a few days late after sunset and well before our evening meal and yet again we were not disappointed. I opted for the ‘Tropical Glow Facial’ which is to designed to help prevent photo-aging, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, decrease hyperpigmentation and increase collagen production. This treatment includes a deep cleanse, papaya and pineapple enzyme exfoliation, extraction and vitamin-rich mask followed by a facial and a hand and arm massage that will leave you feeling perfectly renewed. 60minutes is $130. My skin looked amazing and i was ready for the night ahead and without a face full of makeup as my skin was glowing.
My hubby opted for their ‘For Him Facial’ which renews the skin with this targeted treatment especially for men. A deep cleanse, exfoliation and mask help to remove build up caused by environmental exposure. With the addition of a therapeutic treatment designed to improve elasticity and fight the early signs of aging, skin will feel younger and more toned. I was really rather impressed because my hubby doesn’t have many treatments like this his skin looked incredible for the rest of the week. Refreshed and renewed. Again 60mins is $130.
Apart from the incredible spa experience, I’m in love with their own Red Lane Spa products. Again being a beauty expert Im sent samples of products endless and could not fault their products. We used the shampoo and conditioner, shower gel and body lotion and where both hooked.

With Sandals Resorts your honeymoon begins the moment you say, “I do”. A Sandals WeddingMoon® marries the wedding and the honeymoon, so after you’ve exchanged your vows, you can begin your happily ever after. You’ll find endless ways to enjoy your time together, from suites so exotic and romantic, they named them “Love Nests Dream Suites”, to intimate dining beneath the moonlit sky, hand-in-hand strolls along the beach, and every land and water sport under the sun. Best of all, it’s all included. If the bride or groom wants head to toe pampering and beauty preparations before their special day, it’s all available at the resorts Red Lane Spa and the treatment list has options for everyone. Sandals certainly think of everything and on top of incredible service with a smile your not allowed to tip the staff (apart from Spa and Butlers), so when the say all-inclusive they really mean it.
Thanks to all the staff at Sandals Grande Antigua especially our butlers Shanti and Darren and Irose the Wedding Manager but also our therapists and the Spa Manager at Red Lane Spa. What a fabulous location, resort, spa and team.
